|The raw materials!|
We've been off waterfall hunting again, though this time everything was a little less soggy! Two gorgeous falls near Elterwater - a stunning though soulless village to the west of Ambleside. Stunning because in every direction loomed imposing fells and soulless because almost every house appeared to be a holiday let with a sign on the gate imploring you to book. On the day we went the pub was bustling, but that was on a warm(ish), dry Sunday afternoon, in the dead of winter I should imagine the village is deserted with no local community to keep the place alive. I appreciate the fact that tourism is the industry up here but it just seems so sad to see a stunning village turned into little more than a holiday park.
